Ingredients

  • 4 cups watermelon
  • 4 cups cucumber
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese
  • 8-10 leaves peppermint leaves (fresh)
  • 1 tbsp honey (for dressing)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil (for dressing)
  • salt (to taste)
  • black pepper (to taste)

Instructions

  • Cut the watermelon and cucumber into bite-sized cubes. I prefer to retain the skin of the cucumbers as it's quite nutritious, besides adding a crunch to the salad.
  • In a small tumbler or bowl, whisk together all the dressing ingredients.
  • Toss watermelon and baby cucumbers together in a large bowl. Add the dressing to it and mix well.
  • Spread the feta on top and loosely sprinkle the mint leaves.
  • Once done, serve promptly or else keep it in the refrigerator till serving.
